as the moon creeps over the horizon
fiery hued skies succumb to nightfall.

we watch the fireflies arise
from grass still warm from
the setting sun
blinking in orchestration
like starboard markers
guiding vessels to safety

their flickering light draws their mates
as crickets woo with wings outstretched
the fragrance of evening blooms
occasion languorous sighs

summer evening’s harmony
indulges our senses
as Horologium’s pendulum
pauses in the moments
before moonrise

nature reveals itself to us
and vouchsafes an inviolable bond.
